You Need These Amazing Pillows
These pillows offer the ultimate comfort. They’re soft, but still manage to be firm enough to support your head and neck through the long night. The reviews rave about how much better sleep can be with these pillows and they also offer a cooling effect so no more getting sweaty and overheated because of your pillow.
Your New Favorite Weighted Blanket
There’s nothing like a weighted blanket when you’re having a hard time sleeping or just really feeling stressed, and this weighted blanket is one of the best out there. I love curling up under this for a quick nap or even just while I’m watching TV so I can help decompress after a long day of work.
The Softest, Down Alternative Comforter
Down feels wonderful, but it feels decidedly less wonderful when you picture these adorable ducks. Fortunately, Layla has created an incredible down alternative comforter that feels just as comfortable as the traditional options and keeps you just as warm and toasty throughout the night, which is all that really matters.
An Amazing Set of Sheets
Haven’t you heard? Bamboo is in! Bamboo is a great, sustainable alternative to cotton, which can sometimes tear easily, especially if your bed gets a lot of traffic, whether from little feet or from a fur baby’s claws. These bamboo sheets are designed to last while keeping you cool and comfortable.
Treat Yourself to a New Mattress
Did you know you’re supposed to get a new mattress every six to eight years? And I’m willing to bet there are quite a few of us out there that are guilty of not doing that (including me). But don’t worry! This Layla mattress is affordable, comfortable, and durable. It even comes with a 10-year warranty!
Upgrade Your Current Mattress
Maybe a new mattress isn’t in the budget this year, or maybe you just bought a brand-new mattress. No worries! You can upgrade the mattress you currently own with this wonderfully soft mattress topper option. It’s an affordable option for adjusting your mattress to add more comfort to your life.
Keep Your Mattress Covered
Spills and accidents happen, that’s just a fact of life. And don’t even get me started on pets or kids in the bed, that’s a recipe for disaster. Luckily, you can get this amazing mattress cover and protect your precious mattress from the worst of it, no matter what spill or mess it may be.
You Need New Sheets
This is your sign to buy new sheets! In particular, these amazing Amazon Basic sheets. It’s about time that you replace the old, probably torn, sheets you’ve been holding onto since college. You need a new, fresh pair that’s going to last you for years and will hold up to the washer and dryer’s cycles.
Elevate Your Bedroom
You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to renovate your bedroom just to change things up. You can just buy yourself some new bedding like this gorgeous, cotton duvet cover. It immediately elevates your bedroom into a lovely, and pretty fashionable, oasis designed for peaceful rest and easy sleep.
An Amazing Set of Pillows
I love these pillows! They’re soft and cushiony and just right for my heavy head. They’re pretty much like sleeping on clouds except without any rain involved. And they’re designed with side and stomach sleepers in mind, who are so often overlooked when it comes to pillows and sleep comfort.
This Duvet Cover is a Dream
I love neutrals, so I prefer muted tones like the one above, but there are so many color options available with this duvet cover that the possibilities really are endless. You can find just the right fit for your bedroom and enjoy sleeping under the linen-like fabric without breaking the bank.
A Headboard Fit for a Princess
This headboard is so gorgeous! It’s a great, neutral option for an adult bedroom but it would also work wonderfully in a kid’s bedroom. It’s a statement piece without being so bold that it’s overwhelming, and the best thing is that it’s from a small business. It’s a win all around!
This Gorgeous Bedding Set
This bedding set offers subtle elegance that can really turn your bed into a statement. You can dress it up with some fun throw pillows, or let it sit in its subtle, monochrome glory, just the way it is. I have this in my guest bedroom and absolutely love it!
These Luxury Sheets
There’s nothing like a little luxury, and these sheets give you that gorgeous hotel luxury feeling, no question. These are even wrinkle and stain resistant so you can slide in between them at the end of the day without worrying about ruining their appearance or wearing them down over time.
A Heavy-Duty Mattress Protector
We spend so much time in our beds every day, so it’s important that we keep them as clean and protected as possible. That’s where this great mattress protector comes in. Not only does it keep your mattress protected from spills and messes, but it also protects against dust mites and bacteria that might make their way into your mattress.
This Incredible Mattress
This mattress is like the Porsche of mattresses. It’s designed to minimize the disturbance your partner (or your kiddos, or your pets, or all of the above) feels when you move or wiggle throughout the night. It’s a hybrid of spring and foam so you can get the best night’s sleep, every night.
These Nautical Sheets are so Cute
My husband is a marine biologist, so we’re pretty obsessed with nautical-themed things, even nautical-themed bedding like this. I immediately put these sheets in my cart so I could have them for our guest bedroom. It’ll go beautifully with my lighthouse lamp and my sea turtle decor that’s already in there.
A Tropical Headboard
Rattan always reminds me of tropical, Polynesian countries. Rattan immediately makes me think of Hawaii and I can’t imagine a better mindset to be in before I go to sleep than dreaming of the gorgeous islands. This gorgeous headboard hangs from your wall so you can easily add it to your existing bed frame.
An Elegant Bed Skirt
This isn’t really the cherry on top, more like the cake on the bottom. It’s a gorgeous bed skirt that really gives your bed, and your room, that “finished” look. It brings everything together, and also conveniently hides anything you may be storing under your bed, even if it’s just dirty laundry.
A Simple Headboard
The truth is, you don’t need a headboard. However, your room is going to look so much more put-together and finished if you do. This headboard is a great way to go simple, but still give your room a classy, grown-up feel. It’s a step up from a normal wooden bed frame.
You Need a Good Fleece
Everyone needs a good fleece blanket in their lives and this fleece throw is the best of the best. It’s fuzzy to the max, it’s soft, and it doesn’t shed. You can gently snooze under this bad boy and truly enjoy your nap, all wrapped up in a warm cocoon.
